Best websites to buy mockups and templates

There are many instances in which designers might need to view how the design that they’ve created looks on an actual product. If not to verify how great it looks, another reason might be that you need to create a realistic impression of your design to share on social media for your audience or client. Essentially, mockups are a crucial part of the process of bringing your designs to life.

There are a number of ways to create these realistic representations of your product, either creating them yourself or using an online mock-up creator. Xquissive takes a look at a few options to help you along the way.

What are the best websites to buy Mockups and Templates?

Do it yourself

If you are familiar with Photoshop, then be sure to download either the free or paid mock-ups suitable for a number of design templates. The mock-ups are super easy to use, as you replace the design in the mock-up with that of your own design. The process is free of complicated tweaking and produces incredible results! We’ve put together a list of a few excellent resources that have a wide selection of premium quality mock-ups:

Envato Elements

Envato Elements is the new kid on the block in this article. With over 86,000 templates and mockups they offer almost 30,000 items more than the alternative websites.

The website looks clean, is well categorized and is user-friendly.

You can’t buy the items individually, but you pay € 14.50 p/m. If you only need one template or mockup in a while, then you can better check out one of the alternatives. However, if you use design elements like this a lot then it’s well worth the money, because you do not only get access to the graphic templates. You also get access to 50M+ additional stock photos and millions of other digital assets, like stock video, video templates, music, sound effects, graphic elements, presentation templates, fonts and much, much more. Check out Envato Elements for more information.

Creative Market has almost doubled the amount of available mock-ups and templates to 56,000 since last year. The website got a good facelift and the products are now well sorted out in categories, so you can easily find the product you need.

There are templates for Business Cards, Logos, Products, Social Media, Websites, Canva and so on. Most of the available templates and mockups are of an excellent quality, due to the high product standards.

With a price range starting at only $2, Creative Market is a good place to start your search for the perfect template or mockup!

GraphicRiver

With almost 50,000 mock-ups available, GraphicRiver is definitely worth checking out. They also gave the website a facelift and improved the user experience on the site. The categories are good, but they are less detailed compared to Creative Market. However, you can find anything you need in a breeze if you use the search function.

The pricing also starts at $2, so GraphicRiver is well worth checking out.

DesignBundles

Last time we wrote that DesignBundles was relatively smaller than Creative Market, but that has changed a lot. They have grown hard and that’s no wonder Like the other two companies they now offer over 50,000 templates and mockups.

They’ve structured the templates categories really well, so it’s very easy to find what you need. Pricing starts as low as $1.50, so make sure to pay DesignBundles a visit.
